failure connecting to SQL 2005 /w integrated authentication in another domain

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Robert Gajdzica, Oct 12, 2006.

  1. I'm trying to replace my current Windows XP with Vista RC2 on my workstation
    and I'm unable to connect to SQL 2005 in another domain using integrated
    authentication from Vista.

    I have domain A and domain B. My workstation is in domain A and SQL server
    is in domain B. There are no trust relationship between domain A and B
    mainly for security reasons.
    On Windows XP I was used to create record for domain B in Windows Password
    Manager (Control Panel/User Accounts/Advanced/Manage Passwords). It looks
    like this:
    Server: B\*
    User Name: B\my_account
    Password: *********

    Connection to SQL with this configuration from WinXP was without any

    This is impossible in Vista. Character * is not allowed in server name. So I
    replaced * with actual SQL server name. After clicking on OK server name was
    stripped to B.
    Then I added another record and server name was set to servers FQDN. And
    after that I created another recordwith just server name without domain.

    I'm still not able to connect to SQL server using SQL Server Management
    Studio. I'm receiving this message every time:

    Login failed for user '(null)'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL
    Server connection. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 18452)

    Is there any other way how to connect to SQL in another domain with
    integrated authentication?
